This morning Lauren and I went into town early for a doctor appointment and errands. Bernadine and I were advised to be seen by a Dermatologist since Jan has melanoma, and I was given a clean bill of health. We got mommy’s windshield chips fixed and ran a bunch of other errands, all while chatting up a storm about all sorts of things. Lauren is such a wonderful niece. A confident, smart, insightful free spirit that doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. I loved my alone time with her and look forward to more of it.
My handsome brother had a bit of a frustrating day today. He felt added pressure in his head, bad headaches and lots of nausea. His mind was foggy which is frustrating for him, and he seems to get cold (which is new), and then hot all of a sudden.
Danny went downhill skiing in Dubai this afternoon. There is a ski hill in the mall and he used some muscles that hadn’t been used in a while, but had a blast. He is so anxious to get back to spend time with his brother.
This evening we all walked down to the cemetery so Lauren could see Daddy’s grave. The sky was turning a rich blue with golden and orange edging.
On the way back we stopped to admire the beautiful horses in a nearby field. They were so friendly and loved the hand fulls of green goodness everyone was picking for them.
The creatures are doing so well in Home school. They have received grades back on two of the three exams they’ve taken thus far and are doing splendidly. I love discussing what they are learning with them.
Another day has come to a close. I am so grateful for support from wonderful friends. I got to spend time with one of my dearest friends, ZoAnn, today. She is so compassionate and patient with me, offering reassurance and the unconditional love that a friendship like ours brings. It is these relationships that make all the difference in the world. I hope to be the kind of friend to all, that she is to me.
